Monday was Frances Manor's (where we live) annual General Meeting. This is the one strata meeting that you apparently don't want to miss. The budget is approved, and any major decisions (changing rental policy, pet policies, etc) are voted on. At the end of the meeting the previous year's council is dissolved and a new council is voted in. In a strange turn of events I was voted in as the new strata president. I'm not sure if this was just a 'no one else wants the job so lets nominate the new guy' or what. Regardless it should be interesting and it's only one evening per month so it shouldn't be a big deal. What better way to take care of your investment than be on the strata council I guess. Everyone that is on the council is relatively young, and speaks good english (hard to come by on a strata in Vancouver apparently) so it should go pretty well. We'll soon see, first meeting is in January.
